Filmed in front of a live audience from London’s West End in 2014.
The critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play War Horse – based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo – returns to cinemas for the first time this November to mark Remembrance Day.
Telling the story of young Albert and his beloved horse Joey who, at the outbreak of World War One, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though still not old enough to enlist, Albert embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Now seen by more than 8 million people around the world, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
Filmed live from London’s West End in 2014, War Horse is being re-released in cinemas on for a strict 6-week window ending Wednesday 26 December 2020. This is not a live broadcast via satellite.
